Boston Marathon bombing victim marries the nurse who helped him recover

At one of the lowest points in life, the victim of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 had to endure multiple skin graft operations and grueling physical therapy.

But as tough as it may be, he met a nurse, who would soon become a highlight of his recovery period.

James Costello met Krista D'Agostino, the nurse who helped him recover at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.

And more than a year later, the pair walked down the aisle and said "I do" before 150 family members and friends on Saturday.

In December, Costello said of his wife: "She hates when I say this, but I'm actually glad I got blown up."

"I wish nobody else had to, but I got her."

D'Agostino said that when they met at the hospital, they hadn't expect to fall in love with each other but the nurse was drawn to Costello's smille.

Then, Costello took things to the next level when he invited her to a benefit for survivors of the April 15 bombings that killed three and injured over 260.

Then their relationship took off, and he proposed to her during a 10-day cruise around Europe for the survivors of the Boston Marathon blasts.

He then posted a message on Facebook: "I now realise why I was involved in the tragedy - it was to meet my best friend, and the love of my life.

"Eight months later I'm happy to announce that we will spend the rest of our lives together."
